to our new supervisors and welcome to city hall. i would like to echo commissioner sugaya's comments to you. i'm [speaker not understood] and urban architect in the city of san francisco and i do serve with commissioner matsuda on the subcommittee of the historic preservation and planning commission for the search of replacing the commission secretary. it is from that perspective that i observe her as a broad minded, open and totally independent thinker. i see her as strategic and extremely well suited as a commissioner where it is important to think independently, yet act in concert with others. it is for those very reasons that i consider her strength remarkable and recommend you to her for reappointment. thank you. >> thank you. are there any other public comment? >>> good afternoon, commissioners. my name is bob amagucci. i'm the executive director of the japantown task force and a board member of the san francisco japantown foundation, on which board diane also serves. i've known diane and worked with her for many, many years and have tremendous respect for her dedication to the
reducing the city order and we brought it down to $180,000 to $130,000 and we talked about reducing it further going forward to $120,000. at this point i am not going to recommend that we any lower than we are now. we had a work order with the city attorney for the last five years and the utilization has fluctuated over the last five years and that has depended on a lot of factors and it has to do with the caseload and the volume of the cases and the length of board meetings and the hours that the city attorney has to sit with us and the complexity and uniqueness of the cases and the number of new board members that come on and increase of on boarding those members and also changes in the deputies that we see. so, it seems to me that given the billing that we have seen so far this year, that leaving at $130,000 should cover us appropriately going forward. >> it depends on the deputy. >> is it not appropriate... >> i don't actually have it in my head. but i would be happy to send it to you. >> honestly, i look at the bills very carefully but i don't remember the billable rate for the
years, the city has been only able to keep rent down for low income families instead of building new housing options. he may also call for raises for city employees. the address is at the 6th and i historic synagogue set for 7:00 tonight. >>> the grassroots group empower d.c. will lead a demonstration outside the synagogue to call attention to the school closing plan. it's shutting 15 schools. empower d.c. is working on a lawsuit against the city saying the closures affect a higher number of black students. >>> the virginia general assembly is moving forward with a plan to grade virginia schools. the state senate is execs -- yesterday a bill was passed to assign a letter glade to public schools. they would range from a to f and based on test data and school quality. >>> 6:03 now. the virginia senate will vote on a transportation plan different from the one governor bob mcdonnell envisioned. the senator who introduced the plan surprised his colleagues and introduced an amendment. it would impose a sales tax on gas in virginia. that would take the place of current gas tax. it would eli
, a chunk of space rock big enough to level a city is hurtling towards our planet eight times faster than a speeding bullet. the good news is scientists say it will miss. the scary news is, the 130,000 metric ton astroid called da-14 is the size of half a football field, and it will be much closer than the moon. in fact, it will thread the needle between earth and the roughly 600 satellites around us. the ones that your cell phone relies on, possibly even smashing one on its way by. but if that's why you're think thing is a long way from all of us way down here walking the streets, you may want to think again. the last close call turned out to be a direct hit. it was 1908, and luckily it hit the middle of nowhere, siberia, decimating 1,000 miles of trees but no people. >> if a very large astroid hit, it would probably create the same kind of disaster that wiped out the dinosaurs. >> reporter: no one knew it was headed our way until a spanish dentist and amateur astronomer randomly discovered it a year ago. nasa doesn't have the resources to look for astroids, which is why a trio of americ
